Armenian Heritage Park is holding two events in October to celebrate the Armenian immigrant experience and contributions made to American life and culture.

The first event will held Wednesday, Oct. 17, at 7 a.m. when New England Labyrinth Guild founder and president Beth Burnham Mace will lead a Labyrinth Walk at the park. A labyrinth is a circular winding path paved in granite that celebrates life's journey. The walk will happen rain or shine, according to a press release from the park.

The second event is the third annual K. George and Carolann S. Najarian, M.D. Endowed Lecture on Human Rights, in celebration of the opening of Armenian Heritage Park and the immigrant experience. Ambassador Edward P. Djerejian will be the featured speaker. Ambassador Djerejian is the founding director of the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy at Rice University and former US Ambassador to Israel (1992 to 1994) and Syrian Arab Republic (1988-1991). A fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, he now serves on the Board of Trustees of the Carnegie Corporation of New York. The lecture will take place on Thursday, Oct. 25, at 7 p.m. at Faneuil Hall.

Both programs are free and open to the public.
